Religious Studies trips to Amsterdam

Known as a progressive and open minded city, Amsterdam was home to a thriving Jewish community in the early 20th Century.

Amsterdam is an pivotal destination for Holocaust studies, giving students a fascinating insight into Jewish life under occupied Europe. Visits to the Anne Frank House and Westerbork bring your subject to life, told through the stories of individuals who lived in those periods.
 
The Corrie Ten Boom Museum tells the story of the family of devout Christians who opened their home to those hunted by the Nazis, delivering a poignant story of hope and resistance to visitors.
 
While visits to The Jewish Historical Museum and Jewish Mirror Memorial also give a poignant insight into Jewish history. The beautiful Portuguese Synagogue is also one of the most important legacies of the vibrant Jewish community in the city, as well as being one of the biggest buildings of Amsterdam.
